Nokia has unveiled its PureView smartphone with five camera lenses working together to take images – a world first for a smartphone.

The photos captured by the device are said to have a resolution of up to 240 megapixels thanks to the clever combination system from the five sensors.

It has two colour cameras and three monochrome sensors which take in more than ten times as much light as other devices.

It was unveiled at Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona – the world’s biggest mobile technology showcase – and is said to cost $699.

Nokia announced three other Android smartphones alongside the flagship device and also revealed a basic mobile phone aimed at users in developing countries, dubbed the Nokia 210.

Most smartphone developers are focusing on the introduction of foldable devices and 5G applications  – making Nokia’s pursuit of a camera-orientated handset a unique endeavour.

Samsung, Huawei and Xiaomi have all announced 5G compatible devices ahead of a its expected widespread roll-out next year.

Huawei announced today its Mate X foldable device which comes with a staggering price tag of $2,229 (£2,000).

Samsung pipped its rivals to the post by revealing its latest products – including the Fold – last week.

WHAT IS 5G?

The evolution of the G system started in 1980 with the invention of the mobile phone which allowed for analogue data to be transmitted via phone calls.

Digital came into play in 1991 with 2G and SMS and MMS capabilities were launched.

Since then, the capabilities and carrying capacity for the mobile network has increased massively.

More data can be transferred from one point to another via the mobile network quicker than ever.

5G is expected to be launched in 2020 and will be up to 1,000 times faster than the currently used 4G.

Whilst the jump from 3G to 4G was most beneficial for mobile browsing and working, the step to 5G will be so fast they become almost real-time.

That means mobile operations will be just as fast as office-based internet connections.

Potential uses for 5g include:




  • Simultaneous translation of several languages in a party conference call
  • Self-driving cars can stream movies, music and navigation information from the cloud
  • A full length 8GB film can be downloaded in six seconds.

5G is expected to be so quick and efficient it is possible it could start the end of wired connections.

By the end of 2020, industry estimates claim 50 billion devices will be connected to 5G.

The evolution of from 1G to 5G. The predicted speed of 5G is more than 1Gbps - 1,000 times greater than the existing speed of 4G and could be implemented in laptops of the future
